She uses a variety of therapeutic approaches in her work with clients, and provides parents with confidence and direction in supporting their children.

Carla brings enthusiasm, energy, and patience to her work with children and families, and believes in the importance of lifelong personal development and education. Carla’s completed her PhD in School Psychology from a CPA-accredited program, and she has previously supported infants, children, adolescents and parents in her past role as a Child and Youth Mental Health Psychologist with the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
